Jan 31, 2013
I wasn't happy with the Car Mode app that came pre-installed on Nokia phones for the CR-200 charger, so I decided to build my own. It's called Car Starter please give it a try!

  • Store up to 6 frequently used contacts
  • Play music from an artist or album in your phone's music library using voice commands
  • Buttons to quickly navigate you to WiFi, Cellular or Bluetooth settings menus
  • Program an NFC tag to launch the app

Ap is free & ad-free w/ an optional in-app purchase to unlock NFC Tag writing capability. Available here: Car Starter | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)
